Michael Winter

a few thoughts about data ethics and music (or: are your algorithms healthy?)

How can music, sound art, and creative coding practices reflect, consider, and denounce social injustices and dominating power structures? In this forum, I will address basic concepts of data ethics by discussing the creative processes of a selection of socially engaged works.

Michael Winter is a composer and sound artist whose work ranges from music created for digital and acoustic instruments to installations and kinetic sculptures. Each piece typically explores one simple process and often reflects various related interests of mine such as phenomenology, mathematics, epistemology, and algorithmic information theory. His work has been presented at venues and festivals throughout the world such as REDCAT, in Los Angeles; the Ostrava Festival of New Music in the Czech Republic; Tsonami Arte Sonoro Festival in Valparaiso, Chile; the Huddersfield New Music Festival in the United Kingdom; and Umbral Sesiones at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Oaxaca, Mexico.
